Following the death of three female students in Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Anambra State, the institution, may resorts to banning students from the use of motorcycles as a means of transport.
The three students were involved in three different motorcycle accident at the Igbariam campus of the university in which one of the deceased was a final-year student.
A source said, “She was rushing to catch up with an early morning lecture when she was killed by a motorcyclist.”
The Public Relations Officer of the university, Dr Chukwueloka Christian, blaming the deaths on the recklessness of motorcyclists, said the students failed to comply against the use of motorcycles.
Chukwueloka disclosed that the three deceased students were a 400-level student of English Education, a 200-level English student, and a student in the Department of Philosophy.
He said, “We have several times appealed to students living off campus to leave their hostels early enough so that they can join the shuttle buses and meet up with their lectures.
“We have also written severally to the state government to construct speed breakers on the road to the school, but we have yet to receive any positive response.
“The VC is not relenting in ensuring more hostels are built for students. The management has already signed a memorandum of understanding with four firms in that respect. One has already commenced work.”
